Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2017-02-27 12:57:31 UTC
makewhatis was recently fixed to produce reproducible output (r307003) and later the format changed and is no longer sqlite (r312593).

Unfortunately the installed makewhatis is used by installworld. When installing to the local system everything works as desired, as the new makewhatis will be installed. When installing to DESTDIR (for producing VM images, FreeBSD-update builds, etc.) the host's makewhatis is used and depending on the version may produce nonreproducible or incorrect format output.

  freebsd-update: regenerate man page database after update

  These are currently not reproducible because they're built by the
  makewhatis on the freebsd-update build host, not the one in the tree.
  Regenerate after update, and later we can avoid including it in
  freebsd-update data.
